A MESSAGE FROM MRS. OTT

Dear Country Lane Families:

Students make weekly visits to the Country Lane library with their classes.  Depending on their grade level, students may check out one or two books, and may keep them for one or two weeks.  If your child needs more time to finish a book they may renew it at least once.  Students must bring books to the library to renew.

Grade # of Books Book(s) Due in:
K - 1st 1 Book 1 Week
2nd - 3rd 2 Books 1 Week
4th - 5th 2 Books 2 Weeks
 

In order to make your student’s library experience successful and to encourage your child to become a lifelong reader please encourage your child to share their books with you.  Make a time and place for daily reading.  Help your child find a safe place to keep their library books and remind them what day is their class library day.

In addition to weekly visits with their classes, students can visit to the library during snack recess, M, Tu, Th, F and 3rd – 5th graders may visit the library during lunch recess M - Th. 

 

Happy Reading,

 

Karen Ott, Country Lane Library Specialist

LOST OR DAMAGED LIBRARY BOOK. . . WHAT DO I DO?

   First of all, don't panic, most library books turn up.  Moreland School District does not charge overdue fines.  Please help your child carefully check their backpacks, your home and cars, and daycare provider.  If the book does not turn up, please help your child check their desk, cubby, and classroom library.  Tell them to talk to Mrs. Ott, she will check the library shelves and see if it was returned to the shelf without being checked in on the computer.  If the library book is indeed lost, then you can replace the book with another copy of the book (it must be the same binding as the lost book,) or you can pay a replacement fee; $20 for a hardback book or $10 for a paperback book.  If you find the book within 30 days, your money will be refunded.  If it is longer than 30 days, you may keep the book or donate it to the library.  Unfortunately, your child cannot check out a book until the lost book is replaced or the replacement fee is paid. 

  If your child’s damaged book can be repaired and continue to circulate to other students, then an apology and conversation about good book care is all that is necessary.   If your child has damaged a book beyond repair, then the same two options are available to you, replace the book with another copy of the book with the same binding or pay the replacement fee.  

     Fees may be paid in cash or checks payable to Moreland School District. If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Ott at kott@moreland.org or 408-874-3415
